Ireland pledges to help Malawi fight poverty


President Lazarus Chakwera Tuesday received letters of credence from newly appointed Ambassador of Ireland to Malawi Seamus O’grany.

Speaking after presenting his credentials to the Malawi leader at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe, Ambassador O’grany said the two countries had many things in common, hence the need for their citizens to enjoy the fruits of the diplomatic relationship.

“We both became independent after getting away with colonial masters and we both believe in upholding human rights for our citizens to develop at family and national levels,” he said.


O’grany said the two countries also had a common enemy, namely poverty, necessitating the need to join hands.

He cited universal healthcare services and women empowerment as some of the areas that required joint focus.

Climate change, environmental preservation and economic development are some of the key areas the two nations will bundle their efforts together to address so that the two nations realise meaningful development,” O’grany said.


He wished the Chakwera administration well in its quest to develop Malawi.

“Ireland has various development projects on the ground to the tune of 15 million Euros. This is an indication that our bilateral working relationship has the welfare of citizens of the duo countries at heart,” he said.— Mana
